Another view of the lake
Shorebirds, possibly whimbrels, enjoy the water.
We took a trip to Little Fish Lake Provincial Park about 10 days ago. It a wee bit east of Drumheller about three hours away and it makes for a nice day trip. It takes us through the Badlands and past the hoodoos.
Between that and the rolling prairie it’s pleasant change.
The lake is small, but attracts plenty of bird life and there are hardly any humans around. I’d wondered why. I no longer wonder.
A motor home was parked at the far end of the campground. It was the only other vehicle at the place.
We walked down near the water and wandered a bit when I turned around to see a pink-clad figure wandering by said motor home.
When we got back to our car I could see the fellow a little better. As he walked toward the motor home I thought, “My, those are form-fitting shor- oh dear dog he’s naked!
He walked around his motor home and came back into full view. I thought I’d checked again so I scanned him from the top down. Pink. Pink. Pink. Dark patch. Yup. Naked.
I dug out my binoculars just to confirm this, but he’d stepped behind a tree. Just as well.
It was a hot day under a blazing sun and there were plenty of mosquitoes and flies. He must have been very dedicated to his cause.
Although a bit startling on the whole it was fine. He kept to himself, did nothing to draw our attention, and stayed close to his motor home. Maybe he’s used to having the place to himself and this was his time of day for his regular sunbath. Maybe he just wanted rid of us.
We left shortly afterward as there wasn’t much else to see.
